This week we were invited to check out SEA LIFE Aquarium at the Legoland Resort in Carlsbad, CA!
We were so excited because we had never been there and we love aquariums!
In honor of Shark Week on Discovery Channel,
we took a special behind-the-scenes tour with the shark trainers at SEA LIFE!
They taught us all about what the sharks eat, and how they train them to behave!
SEA LIFE Aquarium is home to more than 50 sharks including zebra sharks, black tips,
white tips, grey reef sharks, white spotted bamboo sharks and Port Jackson sharks.
We also got to meet with Nicole Nasby Lucas, a marine biologist and great white shark expert!
Her presentation featured some of the 150 great white sharks she has photographed.
She is part of a team who tags the great whites to study their migratory patterns.
Great white sharks are at the top of the ocean food chain and help keep everything in balance.
We also loved wandering around the aquarium and seeing lots of our favorite sea creatures.
My daughter and I love the seahorses.
It's so sweet how they curl their tails around each other,
like they were holding hands.
The giant crab exhibit is way cool!
They are amazing to watch!
Come check it out before it leaves at the end of 2013!
Thanks SEA LIFE!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and we can't wait to come again
to visit our ocean friends!
SEA LIFE Aquarium is open daily!
